On August 9, 2016, I released one of the most important episodes of my Life Is A Marathon podcast: “Life After Sexual Abuse with Svava Brooks”
Svava Brooks is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and the co-founder of a nationwide child sexual abuse prevention and education organization. She is also a certified Crisis Intervention Specialist, a certified Parent Educator, and an Abuse Survivor Coach.
The mother of three children, Svava has dedicated her life to ending the cycle of child sexual abuse through education, awareness, and by helping survivors heal and thrive.
In this episode of my podcast, Svava spoke bravely and openly about her experience of sexual abuse as a child. She also gave us several behaviors to be aware of that are common indicators that someone is being abused, and also of those who might be the perpetrators of abuse.
If you are a victim, or know someone who is a victim of sexual abuse, please listen to this interview: “Life After Sexual Abuse with Svava Brooks”
According to national mental health statistics, nearly 50% of women have experienced sexual abuse, and many have suicidal thoughts as a result. Sharing this podcast interview could save someone’s life!
Additionally, I am going to have honor of working with Svava on September 23-24, 2016, in Portland, Oregon, as we co-lead a “Transform Your Life!” 2-day retreat. Please consider attending this retreat, or consider providing a scholarship for someone who needs to be there but cannot afford to go. To learn more about this retreat, click here.
